Subject: A SECOND THOUGHT
My first comment was not too positive but after listening to several replays I have changed my mind. It is very enjoyable and you have to listen to the program as a nine year old kid, This was my favorite program back in the late 40's. I sent a buddy of mine the web page and he is getting a kick out of Big John and Sparkie. Funny How a show I listen to in 1947 is bringing a smile to my friend in 2011.

Subject: Trivia.
It seems to be a little known fact that this program was broadcast as late as the early 1990's over a Christian radio network known as Family Radio. I was living in New Jersey at the time, and would sometimes tune in to radio station WFME out of Newark and listen to it out of curiosity on Saturday mornings.

Subject: big jon and sparky weekday show
big jon and sparky was both a weekday and Saturday show over ABC radio. The weekday show was 30 min 5-5:30 and is probably the show that you feature on the internet. The Saturday show, probably better remember, was about a hour and a half. It featured records of songs and stories with Sparky telling about Captain Jupiter, his movie serial hero. It was sponsored by Rubels Rye Bread and Barques Root Beer, both Cincinnati home grown products. The show itself was broadcast from Cincinnati and was also a television show over Channel 9. Jon Arthur later hosted a radio teen show called Juvenile Jury.
